LOL movie review with a give way valued at $200

This movie is a remake of a French movie by the same name. It's a coming of age/love triangle/teen angst/drama movie. I think it's fine for what it is. It's not going to change your world or inspire you to start writing fan fiction but it will keep you entertained for 1.5 hours.

Miley Cyrus is the lead and does a fine job. I think she is quite charismatic on screen. Demi Moore is her mum. I am not afraid to admit that I like Demi Moore. I like her voice, it's so sexy and husky. I want a sexy, husky voice but it would probably sound more drag queeny on me.

The movie touches on teenage sex and drugs so I would recommend this movie for older kids, maybe 14+. The rating is M. I guess it's like Gilmore Girls dirtied up.

The good bits

  • The mother/daughter dynamic. They were very close and believable. I think Demi and Miley probably really like each other in real life
  • Demi's voice (pass me the whisky and smokes)
  • Fisher Stephens. I just like him. He is one of those people I call strangely attractive. I wish he had more than 5 minutes screen time
  • Miley Cyrus seemed like she was playing herself. She must be a great actress or she really was just being herself

The bad bits

  • It seemed like a little stray vaseline might have got on lens when they were filming Demi.
  • I thought Demi's love interest seemed a little young. At 34 year old Jay Hernandaz might even be too young for me
  • I also don't think the mother would hop on the back of a motor bike 2 minutes after meeting someone for the first time. What kind of message is this giving the young and impressional teens watching this movie?
  • The chicken fondling scene was not necessary
  • Ashley Greene's make up

  7. Hehe, bit of stray vaseline on the lens. Ahhh, we all need a bit of "softening" and "creative lighting" every now and then! (Don't worry about popping me in the comp either... Oh, and I am considering googling "chicken fondling scene" but might wait until I'm not on the work computer...)

  11. I'd like to win this because I'd be too embarrassed to admit that I quite like Miley Cyrus and ask for it as a present from anyone else! Or to be caught buying it. But saying I won it? Socially acceptable.

    Thanks for hosting another giveaway. Good luck to everyone!

  12. That made me look up Fisher Stephens. And I LOL'd a bit that you find him strangely attractive. I need to win so that I can get my Fisher Stephens on!
    (btw I also find weird men attractive)

  13. You lost me at Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore. I hate to say it but I'm not much of a fan of either. As Jess said though, chicken fondling does sound interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have to agree with the masses - I want to see this movie just to understand what chicken fondling is!
    Love your honest movie reviews.

  19. I have never seen this movie but I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan (I own every series on DVD). Therefore as you mentioned that this movie had a similar style to the Gilmore Girls I think I would enjoy it!

  21. Would love to win this, as it would be a film that my sister and I would love to watch together

  22. I love watching movies that show the conflicts that mother's and their teenagers go through. It helps me remember that I am not the only one that has difficulties raising a teenager.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This sounds interesting - and the chicken fondling??? probably not two words that need to go together! I like Ashley Greene though so I am keen to see...

  24. I would like this movie, it made me...lol in the trailer-if you pardon the pun. LOL!

  25. I would love to win this dvd for my daughter, as she adores Miley Cyrus. She has also mentioned getting the dvd, but it would be so much exciting to win a copy rather than having to buy it....LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would really love to win Because it's a remake of the French movie and im sure this updated one will be much better!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Seriously wow! My twins and I would love this they are huge Miley fans and I think Demi is awesome. I can see the three of us spending mother daughter time on a quiet weekend watching this with a block of chocy and a big bag of pop corn xx

  28. I love Demi MKoore, i think she is stunning! Would love to see this movie xx

  29. Just watched it with hubster & Miss 16 as I was a lucky winner :-)

    It covered a lot of the issues we have been going through with our daughter!

    Demi's character seemed a bit irresponsible and immature to me - surely by that age she would have more sense?

    I agree, chicken fondling scene was unnecessary (but we did laugh!)

    Yes the mother/daughter relationship was pretty spot on too.
